Massage is one of the oldest methods of healing; its origins can be traced back nearly 4000 years. It is a powerful tool in maintaining good health and today massage is thought of as a holistic therapy that compliments medical treatment. Massage relieves pain by reducing muscle spasm and joint soreness. It assists in rehabilitation, improves range of motion in joints, speeds tissue repair, breaks down scar tissue (old injuries can leave scar tissue that can contract and cause pain),improves circulation of blood and lymph , which flushes out waste products, improves mood and general well-being and helps with sleep. That is why a regular massage should be part of your everyday life.
